Instaphotobooth is a traveling photo booth installation that connects strangers through photography, by making their shared experience tangible.
The project was created for the Public Interfaces class at the SVA MFA Interaction Design program with my partners Brynn Shepherd and Beth Wernet. The installation invites people in public spaces to take pictures of themselves (“#selfies”) in front of popular NYC landmarks such as the Empire State Building or the Flatiron Building. By uploading their photos to Instagram using a unique hashtag, people can contribute their images to an archival animation displayed inside the booth. Completed installations and previous iterations of this project are available for viewing at Instaphotobooth.me.
